Supreme Court to hear case challenging EPA’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases

The Supreme Court’s first big battle over climate change was initiated by states and environmentalists charging that the Environmental Protection Agency under President George W. Bush had abdicated its duty to regulate greenhouse gases. The sequel is the opposite: Different states and industrialists are charging that the EPA under President Barack Obama has run amok with the power that the court gave it in that first case in 2007.
